Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’ s US election speech "violated" the terms of the Megxit deal the couple have with Queen Elizabeth II, senior royal aides have claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex urged US citizens to vote in the upcoming election during a video message published by Time 100.
Prince Harry and Meghan called on American voters to "reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity" ahead of the "most important election" of our time.
Senior aides have reportedly discussed the risk the couple pose to the monarchy and are questioning whether the pair should distance themselves further from the royal family.
Meghan and Harry’s comments have been widely interpreted to be a swipe at US president Donald Trump, who has been criticised throughout his presidency.
Royal family members are expected to remain politically neutral, and under the Sandringham accord – whre the Sussexes vowed that "everything they do will uphold the values of Her Majesty."
According to The Sunday Times, royal aides have said speaking up broke the promise made to the Queen, and "violated" the agreement.
A source told the paper: "The royal family are all wringing their hands, thinking: where is this going and does this abide by the deal to uphold the values of the Queen?
"The feeling is it's a violation of the agreement."

Back in March, The Times reported the Queen agreed to keep the positions vacated by Prince Harry open during the review period so that he could return if it was deemed appropriate.
One of the positions is the captain general of the Royal Marines, "the door was left open," the aide told the publication, which has been "made harder," by the speech.
A source said: "There were some things that Harry hoped he could opt back into. He dearly wants to hang on to the Royal Marines and the military appointments.
"The door was left open.
